Thanks for responding. The Mailman version is 2.0.5 patched by Marc MERLIN 
on SourceForge. The Python version is 1.5.

I'd like to use the (?!...) negative lookahead assertion, but I'm not 
having much luck. :-(

This string doesn't work correctly.

Content-Type: .*(?!plain--signed)

Note: I'm not very good with regexp, and I have no programming experience 
with Python.
